The Black Sorrows – Citizen John
October 18 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm AEDT
This October, the BLACK SORROWS will be showcasing their new album ‘Citizen John’ @ MEMO!
A cool 21 albums down the line, Joe Camilleri’s THE BLACK SORROWS are at the peak of their game with Citizen John, the new album with its roots in the familiar terrain of sweet, platinum radio rhythm and blues and dark reflections of modern times.
This is an album about perpetual change. Citizen John is Joe’s 49th album as bandleader of combos as celebrated as Jo Jo Zep and the Falcons, the Revelators and Bakelite Radio — but be warned, this kind of war-medal talk isn’t really his bag. “It’s all very nice to get a pat on the back and ‘Hey I saw you in ’78,’ but I want people to judge me on this album,” says the man who still plays 160 shows a year, from his home base in country Victoria to the music halls of Europe. “This is the album I’ve just made and it’s the hardest album I’ve ever made, on many levels. It’s about moving forward. To me, it’s always about moving forward.”
